2011 saw the release of the bandâs second full length studio album âScratches & Scarsâ to critical acclaim. Preceeding the album, the band released a 30 second single âThirty Seconds Too Farâ in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust garnering media support with the likes of Radio 1, XFM, BBC WM, BRMB & Kerrang Radio. Big name support shows including SUM 41, BAD RELIGION, PENNYWISE have stoked interest and a recent European summer sold out tour with the almighty RISE AGAINST have seen the band explode to a new level. New sci-fi video for âBreak The Habitâ is currently doing the rounds on the music channels and the track is available for free download from the bandâs website with an e-mail sign-up. www.templetonpekofficial.com.
